COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schlenkerla Smokebeer Wheat is an ale with light smoky aroma. As Bavarian wheat beers, it is being brewed with a mixture of both barley malt and wheat malt. The portion of barley malt is hereby a classic Schlenkerla smokemalt, while the wheat malt remains unsmoked. Served unfiltered with its natural haziness, Schlenkerla Wheat reaches its full aroma through bottle fermentation with fine top fermenting yeast.

Date: 3/31/2007
Serving: 500 mL bottle.
Event: Rye Pale Ale (10 gallons) brew out.
Location: shigadeyos house.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: Smoke with some sweet wheat malt underneath. Is somebodys wheat field on fire?!.
Appearance: Pours a murky dark brown color and has a foamy and rocky off-white head that leaves some lacing.
Flavor: Deeply smoked dark/caramel wheat malt. Somewhat ashy as well with a dry finish.
Palate: Medium-full body with good weight and mouthfeel.
Overall: Very good, but not nearly as full, meaty, and smoky as the Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Mrzen (my benchmark Rauchbier).

Draft. OK but not as good as the marzen rauchbier. Hazy reddish dark w/medium head. Taste is -well, a rauchbier so smoky and sweet.

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2007
A hazy, reddish brown coloured beer with a thick beige head. A strong smoky nose, like that of smoked Bavarian cheese, and ham! There is a tiny hint of beer aromas, like wheat and malt. The taste is dry and smoky, but surprisingly mild and not overpowering. Barbequed meat and smoked cheese-like flavours, but in the background there is a sweetish malt flavour that is accompanied by a wheaty cereal dry flavour into the finish. An acquired taste! (Bottle - purchased from Beers of Europe, Setchey, Norfolk for 2.19 a bottle).

Pour gave a nice head. Color is light brown, but a bit weak. Smell is fantastic. It really does smell like gouda and a hint of smoke flavor. The beer kind of tastes like a burger with gouda on it. I thought it was fantastic, but I can see why it would turn people off if the above doesnt sound incredibly tasty.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2007
[bottle] Lighter brown in color, with a dense, off-white head. Subtle banana flavors, combined with wheat and a stronger yeast presence. Loads of smoke, of course...but the more I try these smoked beers, the more I appreciate them. Very good stuff.

Murky brown pour with a thin white head. Aroma is smoke. Whoah. Burnt wood. If you get past the initial burnt taste there is a decent hefe in the middle. Kind of creamy. Finishes like a campfire. Odd... probably my second smoked brew and I think this style could grow on me.

Bottle. Nose is SMOKE. duh, but yeah. BBQ pork. Cloudy reddish brown, steady white head. Very flavorful smoke. Sweet bbq, surprisingly good. Damn surprisingly good. Palate is robust and thick, works well with the flavor.

Ugh. Smoked wheat beer is not a pleasent combination. Brewer says "light smokey flavor? And fire is lightly hot. My fault for buying this. Its pretty to look at but too damn awful to drink...

Bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with an offwhite head. Smells of smokey wood and smoked sausage. Tastes wheaty - not overly smokey. Not sweet. Medium bodied. No problem drinking it by itself as it is not overpowering smokewise. Good beer.
